Truck driver injured after crashing into house in Ithaca

The driver of a pick-up truck was injured after crashing his truck into a house in Ithaca Saturday.

Ithaca Fire Department officials say the driver was on Hudson Street around 9 a.m. Saturday, when he tried to turn onto South Aurora Street.

That turn was unsuccessful, as the man reportedly lost control and drove across the street and into a house at 142 South Aurora Street.

The truck driver had to be taken to Robert Packer Hospital for treatment of his injuries. There’s no update on his condition as of Sunday afternoon.

Fire department and city building department crews worked to make sure the house was stable and to secure a damaged wall of the house.

One person who lived in the house was displaced. Police continue to investigate the accident.
